's something serious we have to discuss. that is paul ryan. this is what he was caught saying on a conference call with some evangelicals sunday. the president's path compromises those values, those judeo-christian, western civilization values that made us such a great and exceptional nation in the first place. why doesn't mr. ryan call him an islamic terrorist? >> he may as well. it's difficult to be both pathetic and outrageous at the same time, but mr. ryan has beautifully done that. this is a continuation of the narrative we have discussed which is trying to paint the president aed a kenyan revolutionary outside the american mainstream. there are racial dog whistles here. religious dog whistles here. the fact this is paul ryan's closing argument in the final hours of this election is a sign of not only the desperation but the shameless transparency of this campaign. >> last week we learned of a romney/ryan robocall to voters in virginia that also attacked the president on religious grounds. we've had the bloviating ignoramus in the version of donald trump. we've had the serial adulterer,
of what professor dyson has just said, how does the president win over mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, speaker boehner, who have already openly said, no increases in tax rates? >> well, you have to splinter off some republicans, in the senate it will be easier because you just have to get to 60. you might pass the december 31st deadline where you have a few more democrats in the senate. but the problem is always going to be the house. i think there may be a bargain in the -- in the side of coming to republicans and saying, here are cuts. but the price of those cuts will be that 2%. republicans will face a very tough choice in just a very short time. are they the ones that are going to be responsible for giving 98% of americans tax hikes? do the republicans want to be known as the party that raised your taxes for everybody but 2%? >> right. and i think, martin -- >> so, the 2% solution may be a noose around the republicans' neck. >> i think the republicans have little leverage. not just for that reason but a couple of other reasons. if you consider the fact that taxes are at 15% of gdp, spendin
. now that those who believed in austerity have abandoned it, will paul ryan accept that the president's balanced approach is actually the better way to deliver economic growth? >> yes, and i think the comment from this colorful mayor as well as a lot of other european leaders should make both parties step back here. remember what the fiscal cliff, the prem m is -- the entire premise that it is based on in august of 2011, which is that we had to have deficit reduction to match dollar to dollar the amount of debt ceiling extension. that is a good policy if we're in 3% or 4% economic growth but when the economy is growing at 1% or 2% growth you don't engage in fiscal austerity. 90% of all economists believe in keynesian economics. the idea now that we have to be facing a fiscal cliff when the economy is only at 2% is wrong and is wrong for most economists' point of view. if democrats and republicans are looking for a way out of the fiscal cliff, this whole idea of having to cut $1.6 trillion in january '13 is just a made up number. it's an artifice. there's no reason we need to stick to
be worried this fun is coming to an end, take heart, we still have paul ryan to kick around. that's right. the republican party's leading intellectual announced today he's returning to his seat in the united states house of representatives, where hserves as chairman of the budget so, m. lost but his war against medicare and social security carries on. let's bring in dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." dana, has this election damaged the paul ryan brand or is he still the golden boy? >> well, he's still the goldena conservatives who basically dominate this caucus. th dynamichere. you had john boehner come out today and actually float the idea of, heaven forbid, an increase in tax revenues. that's a direct repudiation of what paul ryan has stood for. because he tied himself to closely to paul ryan's economic plan, it basically became a repudiation of that plan as well. >> now, paul ryan is often mentione as a possible presidential candidate for 2016. but don't reblicans have to have a serious think about that? i mean, given last night's results, is paul ryan part of the solut
. so has the gop listened and learned from the voters who defeated them? paul ryan is among the members returning to capitol hill today as congress gets back to work. so what does he have to say? >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues, which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run, so we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run, and it just wasn't enough at the end of the day and we just have to accept that. >> big ideas, big issues that lost. it seems acceptance is the final stage of grief. let's get to our panel now. in washington msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "showdown" and here in new york joy reid, who is managing editor of the grio and william cohen, an author and columnist for the bloomberg view. if i can start with you, joy, if we might take a momentary break from days of lives centcom edition, this week is crucial for the president in terms of setting his agenda for the second term. >> the president now has to take the victory he won in the election which was decisive in an electoral sense, it was a landslide. and t
this country deeply. >> i want to thank paul ryan for all he's done for our campaign. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties. >> assuming i win, one of the benefits to be able to get -- >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> we need to stand up and stop him from fundamentally changing the united states. >> we got to be careful about calling things when we have, like, 991 votes separating the two candidates. >> well, i'm disappointed. >> we're the shallowest country in the history of man. >> we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. ♪ >>> the best is yet to come. these are the words of the 44th president of the united states, following his imemphatic victory last night. the family is departing from chicago on air force one, bound for the white house, a place they'll call home for another four years. the president put together the most diverse coalition in history, winning a sweep of battleground st
with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party. >> well, into which dimension the party is headed still remains very much up for question. let's get right to our panel. here in new york joy reid is the managing editor of thegrio.com. msnbc contributor ari melber is a columnist for "the nation." and in washington m
. >> the republican party has not developed an alternative idea set other than what mitt romney and paul ryan were campaigning on. ♪ america, america >> are we going to continue to making our case? >> i will say this, i can never, ever find my car in a garage. ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ >> with frantic and frenetic behind-the-scenes negotiations as both sides work against the clock trying to reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff that is fast approaching. the president is trying to ramp up public pressure on congress to accept his ideas for debt reduction in. in the coming days he meets with small business owners, middle class taxpayers, around corporate leaders. friday he tried to recapture his winning spirit in pennsylvania touring a toy manufacturing plant. i don't think the event is in whoville but the republicans as grinch playbook is probably evident enough. to hear some of the president's team, they see this christmas going their way. >> i think we're going to get this done. i'm more positive than most. i'm heartened b
. >> oh, yes. the paul ryan budget. because what better to bring good tidings of comfort and joy than balancing tax cuts for the rich on the backs of intitlement cuts for the working poor. mind you, that's actually a healthier reaction than that of mr. boehner's colleague in the senate, mitch mccandle, who repo reportedly laughed at the president's budget. at least he doesn't invoke the civil war. yes, the american civil war, when talking budget cuts. >> it's not just a bad deal. this is really an insulting deal. what geithner offered, what you showed on the screen, robert e. lee was offered easier terms at appomattox and he losted the civil war. >> now, now, now, charles, that's not very christmassy of you. we don't mind if you wrap yourself to the flag, just make sure it's the one with 50 stars on it. dr. james peterson is a contributor to thegrio.com and robert reich is former labor secretary a and a professor and the author of "beyond outrage," now available in paperback. welcome to both of you. dr. peterson, i could have sworn we had an election earlier this month, but today i sa
making a last-minute dash to ohio wf his number two paul ryan. i guess they just couldn't wait to get back to that local favorite wendy's. and as if you needed to know the importance of ohio, guess who was on the same cleveland tarmac? that would be vice president joe biden after voting this morning in delaware. after the polls, the ads, the rallies, conventions, the debates, zingers, flips, flops, and all the gaffes, it's all come down to this day and, my, what a ride it's been. >> i like being able to fire people. >> contraception can cost a woman over $3,000. >> slur a slut, right. >> purple mountains. severely conservative. >> like an etch-a-sketch. >> morning y'all. >> lift the shadow of deportation. >> basically upheld the health care law. >> eliminate obama care. >> all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation -- >> there are a few things that were disconcerting. >> mitt romney. >> i did not make a mistake with this guy. >> my veins run with cheese. >> what do you mean shut up? >> 47%. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> a very s
states. >> what do you mean shut up? >> the next president of the united states paul ryan. >> my veins run with cheese. teach a man how to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> there are 47% who are with him who are dependent upon government. president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. >> climate change is not a hoax. more droughts and floods and wildfires are not a joke. it's called romnesia. it's like robin hood in reverse. governor romney doesn't have a five-point plan, he has a one-point plan. >> i can't believe all these guys sitting here. >> we have fewer horses and bayonets. >> i love you women. >> be the absolute last resort. >> from the reagan years. >> it too take me too long to go through the map. >> what did bill clinton call it. >> arithmetic. >> brought us binders full of women. >> it's almost like an etch-a-sket etch-a-sketch. ♪ god shed his grace on thee >> i like seeing the lakes. i love the lakes. i love cars. any old girlfriends here? >> you know what? they won, but it's like you cheat. 2550 let's talk about low-cost
mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan are talking about in economic policy, if you believe what they're saying at any given moment, would take us back to that era when business and wall street had a free hand and workers had no rights, their bosses were bound to respect. it was the preunion era when you had robber barronsons running ram hant over the rest of the country. mitt romney would return the country to an era when the balance of power was held by very large businesses in wall street and not by their employees. that said, if the economist and michael bloomberg have one thing in common, it's like they know how to do math. mitt romney's promises don't add up because his real business it turns out is marketing. he's microtargeting a message to whatever audience is in front of him at that very moment and then telling the next audience sometimes the opposite. it does depend on whether you believe, look, if he was still the 2003 or the 1990s era romney, bloomberg said he might have joted for him but this guy has change sod many times because he's constantly in the business of t

of mitt romney's ideas as their negotiating starting point. well, we just -- >> we needed paul ryan actually to help get the job done. >> even having paul ryan talk about it. it's amazing. they decided while mitt romney lost the election, his ideas, they think won. i don't know how they get there. >> i feel like what they're trying to do is say, we lost, never mind but we're going to keep doing what we do. if we keep saying it enough, maybe -- >> i read that -- john boehner's op-ed pretty carefully. here's one thing he said. he said there are three ways to take down obama care, through the courts, through the election -- by the way, both of those haven't worked out -- three through what he called congressional oversight. to me, what he's saying there is congressional sabotage. >> right. >> maybe i'm -- maybe i didn't listen closely enough to, you know, civics back in elementary school, but the job of the congress is to implement the supreme court-backed law of the land. >> that's right. >> to me what he's saying is really quite scary when you get down to it. >> i want to ask -- ther
video. while in washington romney also met with his former running mate, the marathoner paul ryan, and offered a few kind words about him to the press. >> mr. romney, how was your meeting with mr. ryan today? was it nice to see him? >> that's a greet friend. good to be with him. >> good to be with him? >> always great to see paul ryan. >> while today's lunch was perhaps an opportunity to shake after a hard fought campaign, not everybody was feeling so friendly. take for example john bain mother earlier today slammed the president for campaign style events on the fiscal cliff. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. so right now all eyes are on the white house. the country doesn't need a victory lap. it needs leadership. >> speaker boehner said the president needs to get serious about what spending cuts he's willing to make. but that was news to senate majority leader harry reid. >> he says that democrats have got to get serious about cuts, spending cuts. where is the disconnect then? >> i don't understand
and engaging person. i wish i had met that person. >> and now with paul ryan as his choice for vice president, what might a romney/ryan presidency look like? >> my belief is restoring economic freedom and making sure that we also get to a balanced budget at some point and then champion small business. >> he will come across s the candidate of the few, by the few, and for the few. >> he's the most qualified man to run for president in my memory. everything he's done, he's been successful. >> there's the left-hand turn onto sunset boulevard. >> yep. >> the year, 1994. in the news, the o.j. simpson case, the continuing brutal attacks by the serbs in sarajevo, and an an earthquake shakes southern california near northridge. meanwhile, in massachusetts, a little known businessman, willard mitt romney, announces his candidacy for the united states senate as a republican. it's his first run for political office. and his foe? one of the biggest icons of american politics, senator ted kennedy. >> some of us wondered, why would you want to take on ted kennedy in massachusetts as your first political ta
, four more years. >> in three days, we win, obama loses. >> next to ann romney, paul ryan is the best choice i've ever made. >> it's been an extraordinary experience. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. it's mitt romney's favorite time of the year because he gets to turn the clock back. >> you got to own what you say. this isn't a game. >> senator grassley, have you hit any deer lately? >> always been, if you will, a rodent and rabbit hunter. small varmints, if you will. >> was it delicious. >> governor romney is having a tough time here in ohio because he is against the auto industry. >> folks who work at the jeep plant asking, is it true, are our jobs being shipped to china? >> i'm counting on your clear eyes and full hearts to make sure that we can't lose. >> one of my more favorite moments of the campaign is throwing touchdown pass. i know how to throw spirals. >> i don't want your lies. >> america is at its best when everybody gets a fire shot. that's why i'm running for a second term of the president of the united states. >> he said voting
that mitt romney would win, republicans would take the senate, we would almost instantly have the paul ryan budget implemented with all of the entitlement reforms. now he's carrying right on saying, in fact, the republicans are in a stronger position today and government is on the run more than ever before. look, he has to do this to kind of keep his troops in line. his troops largely being the house republicans. but i heard from republicans on the senate side who are saying, you know, grover is really no longer speaking for the party here. something really has changed and i think this is a rear guard action he's doing to just kind of slow down the pace of the retreat. >> the thing about it is i have never blamed grover by himself. i mean, he's an opportunistic lobbyist. the people who you kind of blame here are the ones who sign away their democratic, you know, job really by signing the pledge, and when you hear that some of those folks are starting to really back off and do so publicly, that's a very good sign, martin. >> yeah. one almost wonders what on earth they were doing being electe
of this meeting? we understand paul ryan will be there as well. >> i think the president wants to strike a bipartisan note. romney no longer has to mullify the right wing of his paerd. he doesn't have strong feelings about much of anything at all. is it possible he could come out and bless what these business executives have been calling for, which is the president's balanced approach? anything's possible with mitt romney. and i think it very much makes sense for the president to extend an olive branch. you can say that -- >> but i thought mitt romney was -- hang on a second. i thought mitt romney was the one who proposed and espoused the notion of closing loopholes as the only way -- >> we know he's a flip-flopper. we don't have to -- >> that's true. >> he actually does -- it's easy to dump on him right now because he lost. but he got more than 60 million votes, you know. there are a number of people in this country who like mitt romney, voted for him. and if he endorsed a compromise, might be more willing to go along. >> bill, the discussions become a little dark around these issues. i
